    Just looked at the live leaderboard a B class shooter is leading with some big names below him.

    Just an average day for young James and as for a B class shooting a crazy score it happens when someone has a properly good day and good luck to them.

    Unclassified is UC Also James is an outstanding shot and a lovely lad who is AAA in English Sporting so 105 is not surprising in fact he could have probably shot more

    We've shot this today, 110 is a massive effort from a B class shooter, think its 9 clear on the next highest B class score as well.

    Yes he could have done! I was on the same squad as him, he had one bad stand where he scored a 3. Presumably he lost his concentration compared to how he shot the rest of the course.

    I had a mix in the bottom of my shell pouch after shooting the box so will likely have mixed in some superfast as I wasnt looking.

    England Fitasc sporting selection shoot at Park Lodge, excellent targets and facilities. Great to be in the same squad as Mark Webster who won on 93. Brilliant shooting, there were some big targets there. I managed an 80 which I was pleased with. However if you ever consider going to Park Lodge, don’t take a dog with you. They are very definitely not dog friendly, not allowing them anywhere on site, grounds, car park included. First and last time I’ll be going there!

    I've never had that crazy score day. I've had days when I've shot all the hittable clays and some of the hard ones and finished mid 90s and I've had days when I've hit all the hard ones and messed up on the hittable ones and finished mid 70s but never put the two together.

    Update - now put approaching 3,000 shells through it. I'm somewhat recoil averse so by default shoot 24grm shells, I've recently bought 1000 28grm Jockers and find that the felt recoil is similar and yet I know from my HPX Perazzi DSR that it's actually noticeably different - obviously more with the 28s. Have concluded that the fancy recoil absorber hidden in the 828u Sport's butt actually get's into it's stride with a heavier load. Still liking it a lot.

    James is a special talent. I did once watch him miss three easy teal on a stand, so like all of us he’s human at times.. it’s just less often with him.. 😆

    Just habit from having old ,and I mean hammer etc, guns in years gone by if you didnt stick an oily (light) mop through they would be light rust next time,I would be out in all weathers getting a rabbit for the table, and now of course my 30 year old miroku..same as ,wouldnt want the bores rust/pitting, it might be an old un but its mine and I like to keep it as it should be, obviously a lot newer guns are chrome lined bores....but be aware I know a guy with a nice kreighoff never cleans it...and yes now he has just found a light pit mark, so nothing is indestructable

    I eventually got out to my first cpsa shoot at kegworth, really enjoyed the morning. It was a totally different set up to the little club shoot I'm use to but it was fun and challenging. Just scraped into the 60s so i have a lot of work to do! Great fun though Jamie

    I also did Ian Coleys. Overall a good course, but three very firm stands that only one person straighted all day. 93 HG and some very good names mid to high 80s. 84 for me.

    Can't remember the last time I placed never mind HG'nd with a 6 and and a 7 x 10 gracing my card ☺️ , hard registered shoot at Greenfield's where my hard won 90 pipped even mighty George by 1 bird and if rumours are to be believed even he thought the top field was unkind. I should be happy and of course I am but I do think birds should be thrown with the masses and mid level players firmly in mind, what won it for me was stand 9 where a pair of Teal was seemingly just thrown up in the air with very little thought as to how it would shoot for the majority 😐 both standard, distant and under power with one angled slightly, every bit "designed" to take targets off everyone, sorry but with the best will in the world and despite being the only straight on it, to me these (at least as simmo pairs) are not "big" or "testing" just nasty. I shot it like a robot, Full choke on the angled under power with maybe two feet of daylight as lead, then just mega concentration and line with maybe 2-3 feet of hold under on the second shot no more than around 20 feet from the ground at around 40-50+ yards, wouldn't do it again in a month of Sundays and that's my point, should a win come as the result of good shooting as well as good fortune ? There were lots of really good testing birds there but could have been tuned down a tad here and there, I've long said two hard birds on every (or even every other) stand is going to prove too much for most.

    You know that fu......Messing about too much misses clays!...Thats what you really know! If it ain't broken.......don't fix it!

    Very interesting I thought. Mind you, you need to check how your gun patterns. I now prefer to change shells (I shoot Sporting) instead of chokes because different shells give several chokes difference.

    I've been using the 3/4 and full trap gun for three weeks shooting floodlit skeet with little success a best of 22 so tonight I took my normal gun and guess what they had floodlit DTL on. And I won it using skeet and 1/4 choke.

    Have to agree. I shot my MK38 full and 3/4 today on sporting layout - missed a couple of "usual banker" rabbits and other close up stuff. Minced anything even remotely rangey.

    Safety is something we are all responsible for at a shooting ground and thankfully because we all observe the greatest of care in the use of lethal weapons to pursue our chosen sport the activity is unlikely to result in accidents. With 4 shooting friends we decided on a trip to Garlands shooting ground yesterday for a round of Sporting, its 4 stands of 5 pairs so 40 targets in total for £10.75 payable in advance. Each of the 4 stands is manned with a scorer which is great to see. The downside of the ground was the extremely poor positioning of the traps, in one instance it seemed that the second target from Stand One, if shot late could have put some shooters on a layout further down the ground and out of our visible sight, at risk. We were all horrified to walk past the adjacent layout and discover how close the next party of shooters actually were. On approaching Stand 3 we discovered that the path went past a low breeze block built building containing a trap throwing a blaze target overhead, the danger being that the target wasn't travelling much more than 7ft above the path and when one of our party is 6'4" tall that isn't exactly much margin for error. A clay breaking on launch is going to hit everyone walking past too. No signage advising of potential danger either. For Stand 4, the first target was a near vertical Teal, great, however in the tree thicket containing the trap, maybe 30 yards away was another bunch of shooters, OK, maybe they were 20 yards to the left of the trap but still at risk. And finally we found the scorer (a young lad, barely 20 years old I suspect) for stands 3 & 4 had no eye protection despite broken clay debris falling at out feet or was wearing ear defenders - he had passive cans but said he couldn't hear shooters calling for the targets (the poor lad is probably partially deaf already) so couldn't wear them - no excuse, just needed the right kit for the job. On return to the freezing cold club house and coffee at £1 a cup one of our guys registered his unhappiness with the setup and the plight of the scorer with the office. We will never, ever, go there again.
